The success of CBPR as a framework for pursuing community health partnerships should help us to examine the different ways that such partnerships can be structured, since the principles of CBPR recognize there can be no single governing model. Different project objectives require different partnership structures. This presentation therefore examines the continuum of community engagement that requires different structures of community partnership appropriate to the particular kinds of objectives any particular partnership chooses to pursue. It explores a range of different partnership structures, including a community-driven structure that responds to the urgent need for action-oriented partnerships focused on achieving immediate changes in community policy.

Learning Areas:
Advocacy for health and health education
Planning of health education strategies, interventions, and programs
Public health or related organizational policy, standards, or other guidelines
Public health or related public policy

Learning Objectives:
Explain the continuum of community engagement within which any community health partnership must be structured Analyze how to structure community-based partnerships to achieve community policy objectives Describe how to match the appropriate balance of research, policy, and action objectives with the appropriate structure of community partnership
